Legend has it that, at the end of the Roman occupation of Britain, a king rose up to hold the land together. His name is given as Arthur and he is famous for his Knights of the Round Table.
Most likely he held his power through science and engineering as much as by force of arms, which led to interesting situations.
The fattest knight at King Arthur’s round table was Sir Circumference. He acquired his size from too much pi.
Now that’s history and legend that isn’t talked about much! 😆
